Release Date For Escalation and 2014 Wormfest

It’s Time! And I don’t use that term loosely as time is a very important element in my latest book Escalation, the final installment to the Breakthrough trilogy.
Okay, let’s get right down to business. The release date for Escalation is Monday, March 10th. I wanted to release it before the holidays. But the timing just wasn’t there and I recognized that. No sense fighting it.
I then set my sights for Albert Einstein’s birthday which is March 14th. But that is on a Friday, and Monday is the best day for a book release. So Monday, March 10th it is!

And that same week we’re holding the 2014 Second Annual National Wormhole Week Blogfest, hosted by Captain Ninja Alex Cavanaugh, L. Diane Wolfe and myself. We’ll call if 2014 Wormfest for short.
2014 National Wormhole Week Blogfest: Name one thing where science advances mankind, and one where technology with unforeseen consequences will go too far and set mankind back. Example: De-Extinction, or bringing back extinction species through back breeding, genetic engineering, and cloning.

Science Running Amok
Feel free to reference movies and books too. Speaking of de-extinction, the book and movie Jurassic Park comes to mind where science takes a huge leap forward, but also backfires.
With all the breakthrough discoveries mankind is on the cusp of, are we playing God?
Escalation ARCs: I’m looking for about ten people who want to read an Advanced Review Copy (ARC) of Escalation: The Adventures of Chase Manhattan. This will be an e-version you can download and will be the equivalent of 320 – 350 pages, depending on the font size I use. I’d like to have reviews up on Amazon and Kindle before the book is released. My editor is doing a final once over edit and I’ll have it back by the end of January. Then I’ll email you a code to download the e-copy. If interested, please email me at or leave a comment.
Escalation Synopsis: “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones” - Albert Einstein I

Flashback: 2013 Badge
In Escalation, the final installment to Stephen Tremp’s Breakthrough Trilogy, a seemingly innocent discovery in Einstein-Rosen Bridges, or wormholes, becomes a Pandora’s Box—opening doors to other unexpected and unpredictable realities such as parallel universes, time/space travel, and an evil hitchhiker from another dimension.
Chase Manhattan has survived attempts on his life from numerous sources in his effort to destroy the technology. But he is far from safe. Now Chase and his comrades must not only break world renowned physicist Professor Nicholas Fischer out of prison a second time, but also smuggle him across hostile borders in Europe and the Middle East to prevent events threatening to spiral into World War III.
At Stake: an end to Western civilization as we know it. The result: an epic clash where science and the supernatural take center stage, vying for mankind’s destiny. The setting is global as the world divides into an East vs. West climactic battle. The action is swift, adrenaline-charged, and non-stop. Unending twists and turns will keep the reader turning pages and wanting more.
Together, Breakthrough, Opening, and Escalation follow the lives of the unlikely participants from innocence to a coming of age through sacrifice, betrayal, passion, lust, unconditional love, and hope. Escalation will appeal to fans of modern-day science fiction, action, young adult, horror and a little romance.
Looking Ahead: I’ll also have a Virtual Blog Tour following the 2014 Wormfest. More on that in a near future post. There will be a theme that goes above and beyond promoting my book, and will focus on helping the youth of today. I’m very excited about this!
